Rain and pain


Through my glass window not protected by curtains, lightning flashed on my eyes around midnight. The rumbling thunder made me uneasy. Winter has returned to Sharjah. But what made me roll around restlessly on the bed was the growling in my stomach. I had been trying out a new restaurant for the past two days, and it proved a costly experiment. Turn right, left, upside down – nahi, nein, la (no in Hindi, German and Arabic), nothing worked. At around 1am, I managed to get up and gulp two digene tablets..and like blogger-friend Lori who prays for single parents, I prayed for married bachelors forced to fend for themselves. Dunno when sleep embraced me, but the alarm at 6.30am was promptly put off and I slept until 9am.

Interesting blog you have here. I sympathise with your plight - hope you're okay now.
Umm... eating out is something I force my husband to indulge in very often. Hey, the economy is suffering, someone has to help bolster it!

I feel with you - though I don't have that problem. Like I said, I have two stomachs and no heart! Please forgive me, but I really had to laugh. Obviously, pain brings out your talent for language! I mean, Hindi and Arab I can understand. But German?
